Physics Student, Audience on Pins and Needles
Some time, you do crazy things in the name of physics. This graduate student laid on a bed of nails, had a block of concrete on him, and then had another student smashed the block of concrete. All in front of a crowd, and all done for the very first time.
Ryan, a graduate student in physics, was unharmed, but said he was a little nervous because he'd never tried it before.
"I know the physics," he said. "I know I'm going to be safe."
I hope they gave him extra credit for doing that! :)
